Master Bedroom Rug Ideas
1. No More Cold Feet
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like cold floors first thing in the morning. The placement of this rug is perfect for those cold mornings. It lays right under the bed and sticks out just enough for your feet to rest on when you sit on the edge of the bed. The best part about this concept is that you can easily move it to the top or the bottom of the bed without having to move furniture around.
2. Length Over Width
A lot of people choose to have an area rug that has even measurements, but this rug has more length than width. If you have hardwood flooring, it’s a great way to still view the beauty of it while adding a bit of color to the end of your bed frame. It’s also ideal for those cold mornings. You can walk the length of your room without getting cold toes.
3. Simple Elegance
You can see from this picture that a simple small area rug can make a huge statement in such an elegant bedroom. The Brown of the rug matches the rest of the furnishings and the trim along the walls and door. The fact that it’s at the end of the bed topped with a few chairs makes it a cute little sitting area. This is also one of those rugs that you can move to any part of the bedroom and it would fit in.
4. Make It Bigger with Stripes
If your bedroom is looking a little small, adding stripes can make it look longer than it really is. This striped area rug gives the room a longer look while corresponding with the color scheme. It also gives the room a very modern look. These are the types of rugs that are popular in children’s bedrooms or dorm rooms because of their ability to fit in with solid colored walls and small rooms.
5. Fluffy & Comfy
I’m a personal fan of fluffy carpets, which is why I love this look so much. This large area rug doesn’t take the eye off of the wooden floors, but it does add some pop to the dark espresso colored furniture and modern bed frame while matching the trim and comforter. This is another one of those carpets that would work well in any other room in the house.
6. Abstract Design
A lot of luxury bedrooms are white with nothing else. This luxury abstract bedroom has a splash of color with the designed green area rug. This adds some flare to the bedroom, making it not so boring and bright. If you also didn’t notice, the way they have this decorated is that rug is sticking out more towards where the door in the room would be, giving the room a longer look and showing off more of the rug.
Modern Bedroom Rug Ideas
7. A Few Shades Darker
I love dark colors, which is why I really like these bedroom area rug ideas. This dark fluffy rug mixed with this modern bed frame and dresser set is absolutely stunning. The way the colors of the bedding and rug go together with the walls makes for a very sophisticated look. This is something that you would find in a luxury apartment or even a newer home.
8. Shag Is Back
Shag carpets are making a comeback, or have they never left? Nobody really knows? All we know is that in this beautiful modern apartment bedroom, this shag carpet is totally rocking it. It’s hard to tell whether it’s a light green or a beige color, either way, it wonderfully coordinates with the ottoman and bedspread.
A lot of people love minimalism and this bedroom is living proof. There are three colors going on here; white, blue, and brown. The big brown area rug is simple, but somehow makes the blue wall and blue bed spread work together for a pretty simple design that screams “modern”. The rug is about as plain as it gets, but it pulls the entire room together.
10. Contemporary Living
This bedroom is extremely simple, but vintage at the same time. All of the colors going on here are pretty great, in my opinion. The area rug is one of those fluffy ones that I love. It’s a beautiful grey color that goes perfectly with the green in the bed frame. It’s hard to match this shade of green with certain colors, but this rug works. It also makes that chair in the corner stand out.
11. Coffee Solves Everything
Coffee is one of my favorite things, so why not incorporate that with the decor of a bedroom? This coffee colored rug blends perfectly with the coffee colored furniture. It’s not overly fluffy, but it’s also not paper thin. It’s got a beautiful tone to it and would work with any colored hardwood floor.
12. Breaking Up The White
Here we have another area rug idea that breaks up the flow of all the white. The elongated, multi colored area rug gives the room a splash of color while keeping the main focus on the monochromatic decor that the sunlight beams in on.
13. Grey On Grey
The grey on grey is something that I see a lot in apartments. In this particular bedroom, the dark walls are complimented with a by a light grey thin area rug with a dark border around it to match the wall. It also goes very well with the grey border of the bed frame and the decor. This is another one of those rugs that will work in any area of the bedroom.
14. Elegant Black Lacquer
Some people think that the color black is a sign of a sad person or somebody who’s dark and mysterious. I see black as elegant and classy if used the right way. In this bedroom design, you can see that the black shag area rug complements the black leather upholstered headboard and bed frame.
15. Almost Wall-To-Wall
A lot of people like to buy large area rugs so that they don’t have to pay somebody to install wall-to-wall carpeting. As you can see from this rendering, the beige carpet almost takes up the whole room. The modern bed sits perfectly atop of it and it goes great with the color scheme of the bed spread and decor.
This layout is not for those with OCD, at least not in my opinion. Just take a look at the way the area rug is positioned. It’s not lined up with the fireplace, but it does come corner to corner with the edge of it. Other than that, the color of the rug goes very well with the dark color of the wood floors. The rug also adds to the overall modernism of the room decor itself.
17. Smoke & Brick
I love this rug idea. The brick wall behind the bed leaves multiple color options open for the rug, but they went with a smokey grey color to match the chair and bed frame. It also goes well with the flooring and the coloring of the drapery. They also used the rug in a unique way. Notice how they lined the edge of it up with the edge of the bed frame and it comes out longer on one end? Pretty cool in my opinion.
